Finished Quilts

lessons learned so far #1, 2 and 3

I'm new to the quilting game so have been learning plenty of lessons the hard way over the past few months!

Lesson#1: Accurate cutting is actually quite important if you want things to look right. Quilt #1 was thrown together in (unusually for me) a freestyle," just wing it" kind of fashion.

this meant that it wasn't exactly straight, anywhere! 
Note to self: don't use the fabric folds as a cutting guide!

Lesson#2: basting a quilt is really important, more than a couple of safety pins is required!

Lesson#3: it's much better to work with colours and fabric you actually like!  At least my SIL makes use of this quilt as a cover in their travel cot.
